The new Shimadzu Nexera series with analytical intelligence

Shimadzu's Nexera LC-40 UHPLC series with AI and IoT enhancements sets industry standard for intelligence, efficiency and design

Shimadzu’s Nexera LC-40 UHPLC series with AI and IoT enhancements sets new industry standards for intelligence, efficiency and design. Operators can set the Nexera to start up at a specified time so that it can complete autopurge, equilibration, baseline checks and system suitability in advance, and be ready for analysis before they arrive at the lab.

Automated support functions utilising digital technology, such as M2M, IoT and analytical intelligence (AI) enable higher productivity and maximum reliability. Furthermore, AI now allows the system to continually monitor and diagnose itself, handle any issues during data acquisition without user input and automatically behave as if it was operated by an expert.

In addition, FlowPilot ramps up the flow rate gradually, reducing the possibility of pressure shock. This minimises the risk of damaging the column that could, with time, affect the data quality. The acquisition of high quality, reproducible data is supported regardless of the operator’s skill level for both routine and demanding applications.

The Nexera UHPLC increases efficiency by automating workflows and maximising throughput analyses. The SIL-40 autosampler can process the entire injection cycle in as little as 7 seconds and the plate changers enable the non-stop temperature-controlled analysis of thousands of samples. The Nexera automatically blends mobile phases at any set ratio, which speeds up the preparation of buffer solutions and the dilution of solvents.

The Nexera’s elegant and compact design saves on valuable bench space and now utilises more than 80% less electricity in standby mode, resulting in significantly reduced running costs and supporting the environmentally friendly lab.
